She aims to fly high, but her wings are cut by the ruthlessly unjust gender bias that our society is ridden with. Through this initiative, we want to sensetize civil society and partner them in the process of empowering, educating and making our girl child stronger, to stand her own ground. “SaysMr. Sanjeev Dham, COO Smile Foundation.
